Does the Gear Live have a workout mode like running and cycling on my Neo 2? I use it everyday and have to have it on there.

I am sure it will eventually have apps like Runtastic and such that will work. Just curios if it has any out of the box.

Does this watch have built in GPS?

Gear Live actively tracks your steps & heart rate on-demand; no workout mode currently available. GPS data obtained from paired device. Fitness apps are forthcoming, for instance Viewranger is releasing app with Google Wear support http://www.viewranger.com/en-gb/abou...h-android-wear

I'm sure this will come very soon after release. I see it being a main focus with these devices.

Runtastic has now updated to support wear fully. It has cards (displaying the usual summary info you get on phone, or something similar to what it does on sw2 already). And actions such as pause, start, view map etc. In fact iirc they have updated their screenshots on google play to show off wear functionality.

Yup...it appears that apps are starting to receive AW updates. Another fitness app recently updated with AW functionality is RunKeeper - pretty cool app; it integrates voice control.

it has to use the smartphone to tracking the activitys. can't use the android wear it self alone like fitbit, or gear neo.
